"I’m in a great spot," Miller said. "Recovering from an ACL is nothing -- I’m out here playing the game I love and I’m feeling great."
Miller did post-practice sprints Monday and was near the front of the pack, the report said. His knee brace does not seem to be holding him back.
"I try not to let my brace be an excuse or a reason why not to do something," Miller said. "It’s the brace, it’s what I’ve got to wear. I feel like I can play football without shoulder pads, but I’m not going to let wearing shoulder pads have me out there like, ‘Man, I can’t play football today.' So having the brace on is just part of it. It’s what I’ve got to do."
Miller is rehabbing from a torn ACL he suffered Week 16.
He said there is no date yet when he can go full strength on his injured knee.
"I've got a checkup coming up in a couple of weeks. I'll go back down to Dr. (James) Andrews and see what he says about it," Miller said. "Just keep on working. I'm really not in a rush. I've still got three months until September 1 or whenever our first game is. So I'm feeling great about the process and I'm excited to be here."
Miller injured his knee during Week 16 last season.
"I feel good," Miller said. "I don't think [there is] a schedule to have. You want to meet checkpoints and be able to do stuff at certain points of your recovery. But I'm feeling good. Every day I come in feeling good. It's not swelling up on me or anything like that. It just feels great."
The option would pay Miller a $9.754 million salary in 2015. That salary is guaranteed against injury, but not for skill or salary cap. In other words, the Broncos would reserve the right to release Miller if they don't feel he's worth the money.
Miller is coming back from last year's torn ACL suffered in Week 16.
